Tigons are extremely rare. ONLY one still exists and now many coutnries have begun banning hybrids. The chance of still be able to see one is almost nonexistentant and soon will be nonexistent under the law. You saw a liger be contnet. LOL,

An intersting change in cheetahs is occuring. Cheetahs are bottle necked so their genetic diversity is very low. But they are reapidly evolving new genes. Is this true. Could anyone give me more information.

Inu, edit your posts if you wanna type more. Posting 4 posts continuously just takes up space. Good stuff with what's going on around here by the way.
There are 10 types of people in this world. Those who understand binary, and those who don't.

just for who was wondering what one looks like- this is a tigon

Also i honestly think that more that one ti-togon has been born, just not alive... or died while still young.

Ligers

Post by Canaduck_89 » Sat May 07, 2005 7:58 am

Ok, I'm new to this biology stuff, but I know enough to be curious about this. I know dogs can mate between other types of dogs, but they're not different species. I mean lions and tigers are of a completely diffferent species. Dogs are dogs, they're all the same species. But different species' cant mate to create fertile offspring, so even if a liger got together with a tiger, they wouldn't be able to mate because the liger would be sterile, wouldn't it?? :?:

no. female ligers are actually 95% fertile. Male ligers whoever are all sterile. A female liger can mate with another male lion or tiger creating a li-liger and a ti-liger. Same applies to female tigons.
